Simon Frith author of John Keats versus Bob Dylan Why Judgments Matter gives many examples of why value judgments are important in our lives I feel that value judgments are as equally important and it should be evident why after briefly explaining Friths examples and my own as wellIn his first example Mr Frith gives insight to David Hares comment In the end Keats was just better than Bob Dylan The media without delay misjudged the true meaning of Hares statement and transposed it into a debate of value Although Mr Frith did not agree with the medias tactics he did agree with the value debate Mr Frith Feels that value judgments organize social relations in our life and he further proves this point using an example from popular music Mr Frith focuses on views in music studies Judgments about musicians are generally made in two ways Firstly is the elevation of excitement with communityjoining of performers and their audience Secondly aesthetic and ethical sub-tones during community This value placed upon the musicians is very important this is possibly the deciding factor in the performers career If more fans come to a concert then the performer becomes more popular or valuable The same goes for the messages sent out by the performer during a performance A message that is widely accepted and adorned will attract more fans I find that the critical analysis of value judgments in our lives is of equal importance I agree with Mr Friths findings and find them to be true in other life settings as well As individuals we use value judgments to prioritize important characteristics in our life which shape us into cultural individuals We place a high judgment on the social aspect of our culture Some examples of this include friendships personal appearances and material items In friendships we place value judgment on moral attributes set by others It is these attributes that we judge to be worthy
